“It seems that the job market (and therefore our economic recovery) is being helped by vaccine access and business re-openings and hurt by extended unemployment benefits. However, we may be able to see the light at the end of this UI tunnel. Governor Parson announced that Missouri would end participation in the federal pandemic unemployment programs on June 12th, saying that these benefits were always meant to be temporary and it’s time to get people back to work. The federal government is also taking steps to return to pre-pandemic UI rules. Lawmakers seem to recognize that getting people back to work is a priority and enhanced UI benefits may not have been moving us toward that goal.” (06/02/21)
